    Reggie Wayne - food for thought

    Wayne's contract expires later this year. He will be 34 next year and likely has only 2-3 good years left, if that. His next contract will almost certainly be his last. And he seems to want to be on a competitive team. 

    Especially if Manning isn't coming back, which is starting to seem increasingly likely, then he'll be in the same position that Steve Smith was in last year. Leave and go to a contender for the championship, or stay and help develop a good prospect at QB. Cam Newton has been amazing and Steve Smith is 2nd highest amongst receivers but Panthers are still a losing team and will take time to develop into a contender, same as Colts will with Luck.

    I think Wayne could be an excellent pickup in the offseason. It is unlikely that teams are willing to pay much for a 34 year old receiver. History shows that Pats are often more willing to pick up aging receivers than our counterparts (Galloway, Holt, Ochostinko) and although that strategy hasn't worked out for us, I think Wayne would be great.

    Too bad we can't trade for him anymore to help with the remainder of the year, and there's no chance he'll get released.

    Good thought. How much does Wayne have left in the tank?

    He's probably smarter than OCHO and can actually pick up the offense.

    Would love to add Wayne. Or Garcon. Or Collie. Any one of them would instantly start on this offense. 

    Oddly enough, the player I have most coveted, Clark, the Colts could keep. 

    NE could also use a pass rusher too. 

    Kind of hope there is an Indy fire-sale. LOL.

    Wayne is basically a taller Wes Welker, would rather sign Pierre Garcon. He has elite speed, but he's dense. 

    Peyton doesn't trust him, Tom wouldn't trust him either. 


    Collie is worth a look, dude can play inside and out. Talk about a fusion of Wes Welker (quickness), Gronkowski (power and athleticism), Randy Moss (really great hands) and Kevin Faulk (clutch gene). 

    Welker, Collie and (probably) Price with Gronk and Aaron is a match up that would send fear through the NFL.

    wrong 49.  Wayne plays on the edge while Welker's generally lined up in the slot.  different positions.  That's not to say Wayne never lined up in the slot, but he doesn't play the same position as Welker.  Collie is generally the slot guy for the colts. 

    Oh and your current receiver situation currently scares all teams.  Welker, Branch, Gronkowski, Hernandez create problems for every team always.  Without thinking too deeply, I can only think of Green Bay and New Orleans that have as capable a pass catching group.

    He's an upgrade. Hard not to be. I'm not sure how he would play out of a dome in bad weather etc.

    I meant Wayne doesn't stretch the field, he's a WR with great hands that runs great routes. Marvin Harrison was the deep threat until he retired, then Garcon took the mantle. We don't need another short/intermediate routes specialist. 

    We need a burner.

    I'm not sure if our group of receivers scare everybody. The past two games prior to the Phillie game both Welker and Branch were pretty much shut down. If it weren't for Gronkowski in both games we would have been in trouble. Some defensive coordinators seem to have found away to stop Welker and Branch. This only makes emphisizes the need for a stronger running game than we currently have plus a wide receiver with speed to stretch defenses.  

    Ellis and Woodhead provide a much improved running game but the Pats could really use a premier back equal to what Corey Dillon provided when he first came to the Pats.     

    As for Cam Newton, I had my doubts so it's nice to see his early success.

    Look in the mirror before you call others a moron. I don't see anyone picking you apart so why the need for name calling when folks are just giving opinions. 
    Don't bother answering because I figure after your last comment any answer you give will not be worth reading so I'm doing a pre-emptive strike and putting you on ignore.

    I'd love to see the Pats get a third versatile TE and run some crazy offenses that teams can't match up against

    I said this here WAYYYYYYY back when Vernon Davis came out in the draft that the Patriots could do some cool stuff with Benjamin Watson, Daniel Graham, and Vernon Davis (Watson and Davis both had 4.4 speed and 6'5" bodies)

    Alas, they have bigger priorities.

    That's exactly the point.  Forgive me for giving some sh*t, but sometimes I think Pats fans never give any credit to the opposition.  Even with the best players in the NFL, an opponent can occassionally make things difficult.  So, maybe the opponent's gameplan was to take away the receivers, and take their chances by letting the others like Gronkowski get theirs.  the point is that no team can take away all of the targets at the same time for an entire game, and Brady's targets (and Brady) are talented enough to take advantage of that fact when the opportunities present themselves.  You can't say that for very many teams.

    No thank you--- don't want a Colts castoff! Like when Adam V. went to them and Damon went to the Yankees-big turnoff. Kinda like Bruschi going to the Jets or Colts-just seems wrong!!!!

    "Collie is worth a look, dude can play inside and out. Talk about a fusion of Wes Welker (quickness), Gronkowski (power and athleticism), Randy Moss (really great hands) and Kevin Faulk (clutch gene)."

    Woah, I mean Collie is a solid player and all, but don't you think this is a bit much? Welker I can understand, but he's 5' 11" about 200 lbs., how does he compare in any remote way to Gronk or Moss?

    Plus he's one bump on the noggin from retirement.

    Re: Reggie Wayne - food for thought

    I would think Reggie Wayne would be a better fit on a team like the Eagles, Dolphins, 49ers and a few other teams because of the lack of leadership they have on offense. I think the Pats would have have more interest in a WR like Steve Johnson who has a few character issues but can really stretch the field and can make a lot of big plays.I think if you mix him in with Brady, Welker(assuming he resigns), Branch(assuming he resigns), Gronk and Hernandez I think they can keep him under control, the Pats offense and defiantly the WR and TE have no lack of leadership. Johnson isn't having as good of a year as he did last year which means he could be a little cheaper too. Just my food for thought
